And the NYer in me pronounces it Dawuhn
Yknow I could be wrong.. East coast accents and west coast accents sound very different to me when it comes to my name. Down south is another thing. And when I said Brits I generalized em, but the Scots n Irish say it better than the English. To me at least hahaha
When I read your name suggestions the first thing that came to mind was 'Dawni Fresh Soapworks' and the second was 'From Dusk to Dawni' with a tagline of "We'll keep you clean 24 hours a day."
But I'm from the US Deep South, so I may be completely mispronouncing your name, LOL!!
My company name has absolutely nothing to do with soap or anything else that I make, but it popped into my head like an epiphany one day while I was soaping. At that point in my soaping journey I wasn't even thinking about having a business, but it felt so right that it stuck in my mind. So when I did decide to create a business, I was pleased to find that this name was available so I snatched it up!
My company name is 'Minou Bleu' and it's pronounced ME-new Blew. Here's the genesis/inspiration behind my business name and logo:
And my tagline on my business cards and banner is:
"Fresh - Healthy - Handmade"
Feel free to borrow it if you'd like
Lol @cerelife if I used Dawni Fresh anything it'll never end hahaha there's a fabric softener that is named downy fresh so imagine people calling me a fabcon name lol
Dawni is an old nickname from way back when I was much cuter hehe my real name is Dawn, however you pronounce it
I love the story behind your company name!
Interesting! My thought was "Dawni to Dusk!" Clean all day long!
Yes, people would pronounce that wrong too.
LOL @Dawni I can so relate. (my middle name is Dawn)
Every area has it's different type of accent here in the States...
As is the case here too.... Some places say our name even worse.. More like doon lols
My business name is A Misty Dimness Soap. It's an anagram for "soap it's my madness" which is what I used to tell people when they would tell me I was obsessed... No one really gets or appreciates my name, lol. They're just like "you name isn't Misty and what does Dimness have to with soap?" so I explain it (and then have to explain anagram usually) and they still look at me like I grew a third eye. I named my company in like 15 minutes... so I really didn't think it through. Of course, I didn't think I'd still be doing it 4 years later either... in hindsight I probably would have named it Don't Eat the Soap Co. as that seems to be what I say to a lot of people Over the years I've shortened it to AMD Soap just so I don't have to explain it...
I was walking one day and thinking about Homo Sapiens (I'm married to an archaeologist...) and had a light bulb moment when I realized if you add an "O" in Sapien, you get Soapien. So, I impulsively named my business Homo Soapien.
This thread has been interesting. Please let us know what you decide.
I really like Dawn to Earth, so does my sister and cousin, and it seems so do some of you. I've been planning to get it registered but real life has other plans for me and setting up this business has to be put off for several weeks, if not more.
I've blocked out an email and an IG account.. Hoping no one registers that name before me.
Now if only I can find the time to doodle a logo......
Separate names with a comma.
